Parasitic Helminth Molecular Toolbox

CDIPD is once again the conduit for travel funds provided by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund for students and postdocs working on parasitic helminths (worms) throughout the world. Thanks to Jean Kramarik at BWF, CDIPD can offer airfare and per diem costs to facilitate laboratory to laboratory collaborations developing a parasitic helminth molecular toolbox. Formerly limited to schistosome-related research, the BWF is eager to extend the Travel Award to include all research topics relating to the biology and pathology of parasitic roundworms and flatworms. Please send applications by October 1st 2015 to Loralyn Cross, BWF Coordinator, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Successful applicants will be notified in the first half of November 2015 and the award will be disbursed upon receipt of a final progress report. Please note that only one applicant from an individual laboratory may apply and that awardees from earlier grant cycles are not eligible.
